Antique jewelry is customarily defined as jewelry crafted more than years ago. Vintage jewelry is usually identified with a particular era and includes the historic Georgian and Victorian, Art Nouveau and Edwardian design periods as well as the Art Deco, Retro, Mid-Century, Modern and Contemporary periods. The beauty of antique, vintage and estate jewelry is that unlike contemporary styles, it is not available in vast multiples or quantities. It possesses distinctive qualities of workmanship, individuality and rarity that are appreciated by collectors and stylish clients alike. It is also often less expensive than comparable new jewelry.

Call or Email. I went to a lot of jewelers before finding the perfect art deco antique piece at Jacob's. His professionalism and help were amazing, and because of him I now have the perfect engagement ring. Thanks so much!!!! As I was going through their collection, there was one particular ring that just stood out for me and most importantly it had a combination of my birthstone and diamonds. I kept thinking about this ring for a few days and then I contacted the store via email to get info.
October 9th, by Amy Meyer. Estate jewelry is a term used to describe previously owned jewelry. This jewelry is usually acquired from estates or jewelry that has been sold and is often antique or vintage in nature. The early years of the Victorian period are described as romantic and sentimental by reflecting the youth, courtship and marriage of the young Queen, Victoria. Jewelry from the Victorian era also features nature inspired designs that are often etched into gold. Lockets and brooches were popular everyday pieces of this era.
